of 1965. conservative judges on the court signalling that parts of the law have outlived its usefulness and will be struck down. justice scalia said the law represented a perpetuation of racial entitlement and justice kennedy said the marshall plan was very good too. but times change. at issue is a provision in the law that gives the federal government control over changes in voting laws and states with a history of discrimination, predominantly in the south. this provision known as section 5 has been used to block voter id laws in south carolina and texas and cut backs to early voting in florida. the act has been reauthorized four times, most recently in 2006 with an overwhelming majority of votes. it is now in serious trouble. these developments come on the same day as the president unveils a statue of civil rights icon rosa parks at the capital across the street from the supreme court. congressman john lewis who in 1965 was at the head of a bloody sunday march in selma, alabama that helped bring about the voting rights act and gave a passioned speech in defense of the law. >> still f
